News: Enter to win a Radeon HD 7770 CrossFire team and game bundle
     Tue, Nov 20 2012 | 4:28P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Well, this should be fun. The folks at AMD offered us some Radeon video cards and games to give away to TR readers. Naturally, we jumped at the chance. We`ll have several sets of cards and games to give away over the next few weeks, if all goes as planned. Up first is a pair of Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition 1GB cards made by HIS, along with copies of Far Cry 3 and Hitman: Absolution. "

ASUS GeForce GTX 660 DirectCU II Top OC Edition Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Tue, Nov 20 2012 | 4:07P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ASUS GeForce GTX 660 DirectCU TOP graphics card pushes the boost clock speed from the reference speed of 1033 MHz to 1085 MHz. The ASUS GTX 660 utilizes the Nvidia GK106 GPU core and features 2GB of GDDR5 memory. Memory is clocked at 6008 MHz effectively and supported by three memory controllers creating a 192-bit memory bus. The GK106 core features five SMX units housing a total of 960 CUDA cores and 80 texture units. ASUS further refines the GTX 660 by applying a custom cooling solution, utilizing direct contact copper heatpipes to dissipate heat more efficiently. On top of the custom cooling solution is the DIGI VRM+ power design that ASUS uses with their cards, providing better voltage control and stability."

Corsair Carbide 200R review
     Tue, Nov 20 2012 | 4:07P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
1.html,The new budget chassis in the Carbide series of PC cases from Corsair would be the 200R, Corsair markets the product being entry-level, and with a 60 USD pricetag, we can not argue on that. These chassis remain to be good looking but really are feature rich products. Keywords here would be a nice design chassis, tool free, lots of of space, nice airflow and even prepped for liquid cooling."

Crucial Ballistix Tactical LP DDR3-1600 16GB Kit - BCCHardware
     Tue, Nov 20 2012 | 4:07P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Ballistix Tactical is definitely a low profile design, but the heat spreaders look like they can definitely help dissipate any excess heat. This coupled with the lower voltage used in default and XMP1 modes makes cooling a breeze. They also feel pretty high quality. The heat spreaders are aluminum with cutouts to create more surface area. . ."

Duke Nukem 3D HRP: The Classic Only Better @ Techgage
     Tue, Nov 20 2012 | 4:07P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Despite having been a huge DN3D fan since its release in 1996, its taken me this long to give the fan-made HRP (High Resolution Pack) a try. It takes the games classic graphics and gameplay elements and puts them in overdrive. The result? A cleaner, high-res game that feels more natural than the original."

OCZ Vertex 3 Low Profile 7mm SATA III 240GB SSD - BCCHardware
     Tue, Nov 20 2012 | 1:30P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you are planning on purchasing a new machine that only takes 7mm drives, you can see our review of the OCZ Vertex 3 LP that you won`t have to sacrifice performance. The Vertex 3 LP 240GB drive holds up very well to the competition and is essentially a slimmer version of the Vertex 3 - both in terms of controller and performance - even though OCZ has made the jump from Intel to Micron NAND is this drive. . ."

Posted by: STAFF
Today we are - finally - going to review AVEXIR`s second most expensive memory kit. The one we used 80 days ago to break the DDR3 frequency world record. Without liquid nitrogen on it this kit is still one of the fastest kits out of the box. That`s right, 16GB of memory rated DDR3-2800 MHz CL12 at 1.65v."
